Effect of Transcranial Near-Infrared #Light 1068 nm Upon #Memory Performance in Aging Healthy Individuals: A Pilot Study

We present a pilot study of near-infrared (NIR) 1068 nm transcranial photobiomodulation therapy (PBM-T). Impact upon motor function, memory, and processing speed in healthy individuals, older than 45 years of age, was evaluated. Methods: PBM-T was performed at home using a transcranial phototherapy device, a helmet that comprised 14 air cooled light emitting diode panel arrays, …

Incidence Rates and Predictors of Microvascular and Macrovascular Complications in Patients with Type 2 #Diabetes: Results from the Longitudinal Global DISCOVER Study

In a global prospective study of patients with relatively early-stage diabetes, microvascular and macrovascular complications were common and were associated with increased risk of subsequent hospitalization and death. •The strongest predictor of incident complications was the known atherosclerosis or heart failure at enrollment. •Poor glucose control and smoking were also associated with increased risk of …
